Group Description

DFWSaFE is a progressive support group for parents/guardians of home/unschoolers. We are pretty relaxed about pretty much everything. We are a secular (non-religious-affiliated) group, so we have no "statement of faith" or biblical mandates to follow. We don't care if you are Catholic, Atheist, Hindu, or Pagan. (Religious fundamentalists/zealots/evangelists need not apply.)

As unschoolers, we believe that child-led learning is preferable to arbitrarily imposed curriculum use. Some of our members are very relaxed "eclectic" home-learners, or recently-out-of-school, novice home-learners who think unschooling could work for them and are here to learn all they can about it.

We are not a conservative school-at-home group, and find little reason to discuss "how to make Johnny finish his English paper," but can get intense about respecting children and gentle parenting...and about learning! What we do discuss are politics & justice, health & organic living, saving the environment, and anything else that affects our children and the world we'll leave them. We see play and fun as paramount! We like our kids, like each other's kids and enjoy spending time together!

We are member-led! YOU are encouraged to ask questions & create/share events such as park days, seasonal parties, field trips, "meet & greets," volunteer opportunities. Don’t see any posts about events of interest to you? Organize one yourself and post about it here! Need ideas? Check our archives & links. Questions? Ask away!
